30 Day "Cosplay" costume meme - Day 2

(Posting 2 days in one to catch up with a friend)

2. How many costumes have you done?

Let's see... 33.5 movie costumes - though 4 were not sewn by me but researched and either screen accurate or close matches were found as well as accessories and the whole 9 yards (2 Firefly, 2 Star Trek). I counted Oswin dress I made as half a point since I wasn't happy with it and didn't finish the belt, though I sourced a bunch of stuff for the costume.

47 historical, though I didn't count a few bodiced petticoats. I did count the corded petticoat since that was actual real work.  2 of these were not sewn by me.  One was altered to fit me (Edwardian and I accessorized it) and the other was my 50s outfit, which I researched and sourced stuff for. I'm also counting the waistcoat for Doug I am almost but not quite done with.

And 6 misc (TV stuff, Sgt Pepper) - 2 of these were researched and sourced (Amy Farrah Fowler, Lost Dharma jumpsuit), one was a group project (The Return's Pepper suits, so I wasn't the only one working on them) and another was the Holy Head Harpies cheer squad, which still counts as a costume but that was more put together (and someone else got the shirts made). I'll give half credit for that.

I didn't count the few modern pieces I've made.

So that's... 86. o_O  I've been doing this a while.

Edited: I should have put a link to this page which has all of them. I should really do thumbnails for the movie costume ones too because it's nice to see them all out there:
